10931019_803390629732571_7873124657442979792_n

Gutter Brothers have proved with their latest EP “Gutter House” that they are no systematic, cookie cutter act; these guys are out of this world talented and their musical prowess goes far beyond the trap genre that they have had a hand in building. For those of us familiar with the speaker collapsing heavy bass trap tracks that have out Val and Colin on the map, Gutter House shows us that this duo are not just top flight trap producers, but rather all around complete maestros of electronic music.

“Fuck Your System” ft Ryan Sharp was made to keep your attention with a rhythm so dynamic and progressive, you know that you are not listening to a looping beat but rather a complete song. The transitions are smooth and the escalating energy pushes the track that will appeal to deep house and trap fans alike. “G” ft Matth starts off with a superb ambient intro with intoxicating key work highlighting the contrasting vocals. Gutter absolutely nail the build up to drop sequence and the dance vibe that follows is pure quality house. The final track, “In Our Blood” kicks off with a calm trap melody that morphs into a deep house fantasy of a song, and us bound to receive many rewinds.

After giving Gutter House a plethora of spins, I am astonished with how well these guys put their versatility on display. As a die hard fan of their traditional sound, I am blown away by how well this hybrid of an EP came out, if you aren’t on the Gutter Brothers’ bandwagon yet, you’d might wanna hop in while there are still some seats left, as these two are going straight to the top at a very rapid pace. Great EP, we thank you for this gem GB, KEEP IT GUTTER

Trap Thursday: Tautixx, Ozzie, Myth, Gutter Brothers

This weeks Trap Thursday hops around all over the globe from LA to the UK to Romania. If we’ve learned anything, we’ve learned that good music has no borders and that the trap is worldwide! Enjoys this weeks installment, and as always, if there’s anything or any artist I should hear, submit below! 

Tautixx

Juicy J Drugs in the club (hustle remix)

15 year old prodigy Tautixx hails all the way from Romania and managed to blow us away with his remix of Juicy J’s Drugs in the Club track. When a producer can take a sick track and transform it into an even better one, he has done his job, and this tune is a job well done. The second drop on the hustle remix is absolutely deadly and the chopped & screwed vocals over the added instrumentals will put you in a trance you will not want to get out of. I don’t know much about the country of Romania, but if this kid is any representation of the musical tastes out there, they get down on the ball trap scene. Props to the kid for this sick remix!

Ozzie

Marble Floors

Cream Collective frontman Ozzie blessed us with a sensual, smooth as butter, cold as ice track Marble Floors, and it is awesome. A bit different from the bass bangers of his illustrious catalogue, there are still no shortage of 808s on this softer style tune. The contrast between the gangster hip hop vocals and lighter beat make for a perfect blend and will definitely leave you begging for more. This is Calm Trap music at its finest folks!

Myth

VFFECTIXN

Vffectixn is the latest release from Trapdoor Records duo Myth and it is absolutely beautiful. This is the kind of track that will make you want to be in a relationship just so you can play it for your significant other. The hide and go seek bassline keep your ears yearning for the next progression coupled with some of Myth’s trademark vocal work makes this track an absolute staple for your bedroom playlist. The sexy was brought on this track and it did not go unnoticed!

Gutter Brothers ft. Jogele

Kill

Just when it seems like they can’t get any better, LA trap duo Gutter Brothers still manage to surprise us with quality production with their upcoming track entitled “Kill”. The percussion work on this track is nothing short of A1 and the song writing/vocals are just delightful. By now, you should know what to expect from GB, always gutter, always dope. Big ups for this one, be on the lookout for the full version April 28!

Gutter Brothers “Wreck” + Exclusive Interview

1724255_626179264120376_938697014_nThe much anticipated new track from Gutter Brothers has arrived and it is everything we hoped it would be. “Wreck” is a trap twerk track that will eliminate any speakers it’s played on with its above par 808 usage and upbeat tempo. The transitions leading up too and coming out of the drops are above par, in true GB fashion. GET DOWN, KEEP IT GUTTER!

Interview:

1. How did you guys come together to form Gutter Brothers, and what were you doing individually before?  

 

Val – Colin and I met working at 2K Games. We were video game testers for the game Borderlands 2. At the time I was working on my own dubstep project named V1L1NT while Colin was putting together dubstep mixes under the name Dissentia. We worked together but didn’t realize our similar taste in music until our co-worker tried to bash dubstep. Colin jumped up from across the room and said “Who the fuck has a problem with dubstep, that’s my shit!” and then I realized a dope ass dude had been sitting right in front of me the entire time. We started going to shows and then somebody dropped an 808 on the floor during their set which sent our brains down the path we are on now.

 

Colin – Haha, yeah, we came together to make Trap pretty much as soon as we heard it and realized we both loved it. It’s been a very natural thing, and beyond Trap and even EDM, our musical tastes have been very similar, which makes working together an exciting and smooth process.

2. Of all the projects you’ve released, which would you say has been your favorite or has meant the most?  

 

We are sitting on a track right now that I am sure will be our favorite release but currently we have to give all the love to our Valentine’s Day EP “Kiss Me, I’m Gutter”. We left work and spent a couple of months just working on music and that is what became “Kiss Me, I’m Gutter”.  Pesh from Clubtapes.com hit us up and asked if we wanted to release an EP with them and we said “Fuck Yeah!” Pesh really gave us an opportunity to shine when no one knew who we were. That shit is dope because it takes opportunities like that to make your way up and that was our foot in the door!

3. What is one element that is necessary in every Gutter Brothers track?  

 

Val – 808s. I don’t care if it’s trap, dubstep, house, country or otherwise; I love making music with sub bass kicks being the centerpiece. That is the one element I always tried to use, even before EDM trap was a thing. I grew up listening to rock and industrial music but I loved how the down south bass sounded. I tried to merge the worlds a few times in my own music but not until now have a really gotten a feel for how 808’s can truly replace conventional bass in popular music. I think that it is one of the dopest thing to happen to music since distortion.

4. Who are some of your favorite producers/dj’s in the industry? 

Val – Diplo has been one of my favorites for a while because of the way he stays ahead no matter what’s going on but to name a few others: Bear//Face,  Etc! Etc!, Borgore, KickRaux, $yrup, Jackal, Louisiana Jones, Rell The Soundbender, Ookay, Kennedy Jones, and too many to name always.

 

Colin – Everybody he said, plus GTA, JSTJR, Bro Safari, Boombox Cartel, DJ Snake, Dismantle, Enferno, Feed Me, Culprate, Getter, Kai Wachi, Must Die!, Tomsize, Cy Kosis, Party Favor, and so many others.

5. What sets Gutter Brothers apart from the rest?  

 

Val – I think we are just starting to come into our own. I don’t think we have set ourselves apart as much as we will in the near future honestly. We just see the world different than mass (which should be common for most artists) and I am sure that plays into how we approach music and DJing. I think when you just turn off your peripherals and focus on yourself it makes it pretty easy to set yourself apart but we have some off the wall shit we are planning on putting out there in the future!

Colin – We really fucking love what we do, and we are as real as it gets. 

 

6. Any details on what you’re currently working on? And what is the next step for GB moving 

forward?

 

We are just working on doing us. We don’t have any master plans or schemes. We just want to make dope music and get it out to the most people possible. We are focusing more on singles right now because we honestly feel like that is the most fan friendly way to release music. It makes it very easy for us to release tracks as free download for the fans and they are the people we want to make happy!

7. What advice would you give to anyone pursuing a career in edm music?

 

Don’t! You pursue careers in banking, law, medicine but just make music because you love it. It would be great to make a living and spend all of your time doing what you enjoy, but the only way you will enjoy is if you don’t lose yourself and keep doing what you love. Make the music you want to hear, regardless if it exists yet or not.

Thank you guys so much, we here at Arntrela are huge fans of your guys work and we look forward to covering more of your shows and release
